Ryan Biech: Canucks suffer today but future talent offers hope for tomorrow
December 14 2017
Ryan Biech, Sportsnet 650 prospects analyst, weighs in on the Canucks 7-1 loss to the Predators and says the culprit is an all-around lack of talent everywhere in the lineup, whereas Nashville has depth for days. Looking ahead to what could be brighter days, coming down the pipe are a number of products playing on national teams and burning up the score sheet in Europe. Jonah Gadjovich and Kole Lind were practising on a line together for Canada's World Junior team, as one example.

Travis Green is 'savvy' enough to know the team he has: Wyatt Arndt
December 14 2017
Province sportswriter Wyatt Arndt joins Satiar Shah and Jawn Jang to unpack what went wrong with the Canucks against the Predators, besides the obvious. "We have to be fair to Travis. Let him have time to see how he's going to approach this." Young players need time to show what they can do. Nikolay Goldobin made mistakes and was not aggressive enough, but it's clear the coach has a plan.

Who is the best quarterback in next NFL draft class?
December 14 2017
NFL quarterback analyst Mark Schofield joins Satiar Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to lament the fate of the Philadelphia Eagles. "Can Nick Foles step in and finish the season that team has started?" And what does this mean for the NFC? He talks Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, Jared Goff and the L.A. Rams and which draft-pick quarterback could land in Cleveland? Lamar Jackson? Baker Mayfield? The Browns, however, have much more than a quarterback problem.

Canucks need perfect goaltending, a role for Goldobin and a market for Burmistrov
December 12 2017
Sportsnet's Iain MacIntyre commiserates over the Canucks' many injuries and many hurdles. Because goals will be in short supply, Vancouver goaltending has to be excellent but the challenge is that neither Anders Nilsson or Jacob Markstrom is at his best. "We all knew things were going to be tough without Horvat." He talks Nikolay Goldobin, Alexander Burmistrov and Erik Gudbranson.

Danny Kelly on NFL's unpredictable division match-ups and shifting leader board
December 12 2017

Danny Kelly from TheRinger.com calls in to talk with Satiar Shah and Jawn Jang to predict there will be a lot of movement in the standings. Injuries across the league hurt respective teams but are also "very brutal" to the player themselves given the severity in some cases. The NFC South is still the most threatening and, in the NFC East, the Eagles are balanced even without Carson Wentz. Tom Brady's losing streak against the Dolphins continued last night.

Aaron Levine: The NHL in Seattle could be successful like the MLS Sounders
December 05 2017
The sports director at Q13 Fox Seattle, calls in to talk with Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to unpack the deal to renovate Key Arena. "I would say this is a good deal," he says because it will lead to an NHL franchise. He can't say the same for the future return of the NBA, but a regional rivalry and decent location could be good for hockey. "I doubted the Sounders," he says. "Hockey could potentially be a sleeping giant here in Seattle."
